Since I'm not a big follower of professional sports, I went back to the university I got my B.S and M.Ed. degrees from - University of Nevada, Reno.
I found a picture of the logo and drew it as well as I could on to fusible. Of course, I forgot to reverse it, so with the one facing the proper direction, I am making a cover for my Kindle...it's not finished yet, but I did make myself a mug rug/snack mat!
Second one, so it will be heading right, in the correct direction!
I did sew around the edge with a straight stitch, to make sure everything stayed in place - I know fusible isn't forever!!
I had fun with the quilting! I used So Fine in white and dark blue...I was bold and did some quilting on the white fabric with the dark blue. I miss my longarm!! I also did a faux piping binding (the binding matches the backing, I forgot to take a picture of it), so I easily sewed it down on the front with the dark blue So Fine. The school colors are dark blue, silver and white. I found a beautiful silvery grey in my stash and used it.
This is how I intend to use my mug rug/snack mat!! My beautiful mug (in my favorite color) was a gift from a friend in England, Susie, who started out as a reader and became so much more!!
Thank you, Kim, of Persimmon Dreams, for these challenges!! I'm having so much fun stretching myself, especially with my quilting on my DSM!! I'll be linking up with Kim on her blog. #pqseason11
